Yesterday's visit to Birmingham by the prime minister was undermined by criticism of the aggressive tone of a Tory broadcast attacking the city's Labour council, reports the Financial Times (p1).

The paper quotes an interview with the Birmingham Evening Mail in which John Major says: 'I'm not bashing Brum.'

He went on to say: 'Our political view is that (the city) is being short-changed by the inefficiencies of the present Birmingham council.'

But he did not forecast a Conservative victory in the city, the FT reports.
